1999 F250 Headlight removal

I dont want to pry on the wrong thing and brake something. I am trying to remove the headlight. I was told that their are some pins that need to be pulled up. I dont see any pins. I do see two plastic clips on each side of the headlight. They are flat on the top with a small slot in them. There is a "T" stamped on the top of it. Are these the pins? I tried to find a shop manual today without much luck. Maybe someone out there has a picture to show me the pins that need to be removed.

Thanks

Doug

THe owners manual can be found at:

http://www.motorcraftservice.com/vdi...s/default.asp?

down the page on the left in the "Non Subscription resources" (in other words, FREE!) see the owners guide tab, select it and fill in the year and make etc.

I assume you had the F250 superduty which on page 204/205 shows either the screw off from the rear or sealed beam screw removal, no "Pull up tabs" like on my 2005 E350. The manual has pics for you.

Hope that helps.

When I click on that link I dont see the owners guide tab... If I click on manuals it sends me to a site where I can buy a manual..

pulling the headlight assemblies is actually quite easy. on the top of each, you will see 2 clips that need to be removed. they are kinda tricky, but if you look at them, they have "wings" that need to be pulled out and then the clip will slide straight up and off. when you get the 2 clips off, then you will have to reach down towards the bottom, directly behind the light. there is a plastic **** that has 2 "wings" on it, and you have to squeeze them in, and the light will slide forward and out of the truck. the hardest part is definately getting the lower **** released from the light housing. i just changed my lights out a couple weeks ago to install the clear style. the whole job for all 4 pieces took about 30 minutes. hope this info helps.

I got the new lights in and they look great. One trick that I got off this site was sliding a 13mm socket over the **** with the two wings. The problem now is on my old lights a torx driver would adjust the lights now the adjuster looks like a torx driver, so I guess I need some kind of a very small socket or special tool? But, they look great.

How to remove & replace headlight on '94-96 F250

DO NOT REMOVE GRILL.
IT IS NOT NECESSARY WITH THIS METHOD.

Make tool 1/4 x 1 x 14 using flat bar.

This site should allow pictures. Clip is made by making a notch in the end of the flat bar 3/32" x 1/2". Cut slots in the notch of bar with a 32 tooth hack saw blade to hold the clip. This clip tool is used to hold the clip for removal and replace.

Follow these instructions
Remove 3 top Bezels screws.
Remove battery. Remove
two lower 7/16 nuts. Remove
Bezel. Attach tool to lower clip to remove.
Remove top two clips with snap ring pliers.
R/R headlight.

Install new clips with the tool. I have posted this tool for sale on the net.

This is much quicker than any other method.

The 13mm sockets did not work for me, but a 14mm open end wrench did. Put the wrench on where the wings aren't and rotate the wrench 90 deg upwards while gently pulling on the headlight. I just got my new clear lights installed. About an hour for the 1st one and 10 mins for the 2nd one.
